Sarah and Alvaro's Wedding at the Fernbank Natural History Museum

I rarely blog about both the engagement and wedding of the same couple (just trying to squeeze in a time to do it :))

But I can't pass on this couple.

I simply loved the aura that their wedding gave from start to finish.

Yes, it's probably partly the venue, where they also had their engagement session, but this time the setting was entirely different. Not only, there were dinos in the background, but they themed the wedding for the Oct. 31 holiday... with masks and pumpkins.









As I wait for Sarah to put on her dress, I shot the details of her wedding dress, etc..
I spot a dinosaur outside our window,

She started getting ready...




Alvaro is definitely glowing with joy ..as Sarah walks down the aisle ..



Here comes Sarah..



And my favorite bride and groom photos:






Don't forget about the dinosaurs...




But again, I had to say it one last time, I simply loved the aura that their wedding gave from start to finish.... everybody was kind, and having fun, in a not rowdy way...

the groom and some of the guests were comical, really having fun with everybody,




to the Aunt. I forgot if Beth was her name,who showed us around when we got to the venue,
the bridesmaids who assisted me in getting shot details during bride preparation,
one of the groomsmen who brought us drinks, just right after the wedding,

to all their guests,

thank you..

but most of all, to the bride and groom, both down-to-earth, thank you for making our job as photographers fun...

A long and lasting marriage to both of you Sarah and Alvaro... we hope you love your photos.

Engagement at the Natural History Museum




 They wanted to celebrate their engagement by taking photos at their future wedding venue. 

Even busy with museum goers, it did not stop us :) 

We stayed clear of the dinosaurs ;-) 





 Note Sarah's custom-art shoes, this guy gave it to her when he proposed!

Kristi and Alex - Engagement - Manassas Battlefield - Virginia

This is my first engagement session here in Virginia.
I met Alex and Kristi thru a wedding website and we first had our meeting at Starbucks.

I would say not only they love and picked me for their wedding and engagement, but I would say, the feeling was mutual.

And we hit it off during our engagement session.. which was chilly to start with...

we picked out 3 spots in the Manassas Battlefield park.
Our first stop was the Stone bridge..



Next stop was the Stone House... definitely windy once we got there...

In having fun, we were on a roll..





Our last stop, was the visitors center...





And of course, the session gotta end with the "jen wright photography DIP"...





tO kRISti and ALex,
we are excited to photograph your Marine wedding at the Farm in 2017...

The Story Behind the River shots... an engagement shoot

Me and Rachel had trouble syncing up the schedule and weather won't cooperate with us..so finally we both decided, rain or shine we will take photos that day.

We are running behind but that only made us more excited to shoot away in this lovely nature.

It is a hidden river park within the city...
I am so glad that we discovered it, thank you very much google :)

I told Rachel that our first shots will be "warm up"... but when we began, they don't really need one..



My couple does not want to walk more but somehow I took them by the bridge and we shoot some photos there, but Rachel saw the river I was talking about.... then she somewhat exclaimed "I want pictures there!"


We are not alone at the river... I don't blame them, this place is a gem...




Getting down is a little bit trickier if you have not been here like I was... Let us see how Rachel and Casey are doing..so far so good ..optimism and more level of excitement are now rushing in on my part..






Okay, I got a little scared now for my couple, ... so I urged them that they don't have to go that far out....

And............

And..........

Ooopsies..........



Rachel was fine by the way :) (Whew!)


And for our final shots ...






I really enjoyed this engagement session...

All the best to my couple Rachel and Casey!

Cameron and White Wedding .. a Sweet Rehash ..

I sat foot very early at the venue... with nobody but the video professionals who were also early birds like I am...

Ahhh.. perfect setting for a near-summer wedding in Atlanta... why is my bride almost 2 hours so far from the venue, I can see it........... I feel her why .. why this particular place... this..



And then my Nyke came, I didn't recognize her at first, then we hugged and she started getting ready. I switched to my busy mode, taking shots of details......




Little miss does not want any picture... but I'm sure Nyke wants some of Precious here so...


And then it is time for the couple to finally tie the knot...


Big sis had to step in for the flower petals... she is happy to do it, way to go!!


Here comes the bride...........



And then the two became one...



We had some kayakers in the background...and these curious girls are checking them out...



And here are my favorite bride and groom shots that day...




Congratulations Kevin and Nyke...
